Editorial Review of Fish Keg

photo: Misty Tosh
Despite its flashy sign, The Fish Keg is actually an old-fashioned market specializing in seafood and homemade salads. Those in the know come from all over the city to enjoy their fine selection of fresh fish, shrimp, oysters, clams and other delights of the sea.

Open until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, The Fish Keg is also an excellent spot for a late-night bite. Enjoy the greasy fish and chips wrapped in a paper bag, or grab the fried oysters for take-out. Those who come to stock up on seafood find that the line to weigh and purchase fresh fish moves with remarkable speed and that the staff is very friendly and courteous. This one-of-a-kind market, featuring fish from all over the world, is a must-see for Howard Street visitors.

Average cost: <$10
